Good tool to fill a lot of balloons with out hurting your mouth/cheeks... only thing is it will not blow up smaller balloons and you have to get used to timing the air.... I popped a few balloons until I got the hang of the filling power of it. 3 stars since it didn't meet my requirements for smaller balloons.
The day of manually blowing up balloons are over. My daughters love to help too. It is so fast and you can do two balloons at the same time. It is super light to carry and have used it at multiple events for quick set up.
Pros: - Easy to Use - Saves time - Saves your breath
Cons: - Expensive for what it is - (but realize similar products are priced the same) - Louder than I expected - Doesn't work on small balloons
I wanted to make a balloon garland and ordered a set off Amazon. About three days before my kid's birthday I pulled out the balloons and the instructions say to not use your mouth to blow them up. I found that odd and started to blow them up. Well, they were actually thicker material than I was used to and while I was able to blow them up, it took a lot of effort AND they looked odd. So I was able to grab this inflator on one day shipping. In less than 20 mins, I had over 60 balloons ready to go. It saved me so much time. I am taking off one star because it will not work with smaller balloons. The garland. set I bought had about 15 smaller balloons and no matter what nozzle I used or speed, I couldn't get it to work with small balloons.
My 3 year old asked for a balloons for her birthday so we got hundreds of balloons and filled them all up in about 20-30 min. After the first few balloons you kind of find your groove with it and then it goes by super quick.
My only two complaints: -Noise is a bit loud but not unbearable. It is a freakin mini compressor so I didn't expect it to be silent. -I wish both nozzles could be run separately. If i start inflating on one side, then the other nozzle starts blowing air as well. Its not a big deal if you're working alone, but if you're working with another person you have to sync up when you push down to inflate.
Overall, it got the job done and saved my lungs so I'm happy.
This machine saved my life for balloon arch!! I had no idea these even existed until i searched for a manual one and found this gem. I love that it has 2 pumps so 2 people can work at the same time. Also comes with small adapters for the balloon entry. I had small balloons and found that if i covered one hole the machine worked better for that size balloon. Like it needed more power to blow it up. Regular balloons will work just fine though. Noise level was ok, you cant expect a quiet pump. And suuuper easy to use! Just plug in and go. Also, it has an option for continuous air OR an option where it only blows air when u attach the balloon and press down. Amazing i love this thing.
